Netflix has added support for HDR streaming on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
The Sony’s flagship device has now been listed on Netflix’s support page for HDR enabled mobile devices, alongside LG G6.
The Xperia XZ Premium was launched earlier this year with a 4K HDR display. Yes, a 4K HDR display – isn’t it great.
At launch, it only had support for Amazon Prime Video HDR support but support for Netflix was absent.
From now on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the only mobile device on the globe that has HDR support on both services as all the other devices only support one or the other – not both.
The LG G6 was previously the only mobile device with HDR content streaming support for Netflix. The LG G6 is actually compatible with Dolby Vision and not the standard HDR-10 content that the Sony XZ Premium supports, although the difference of these technologies mobile devices is really negligible.
We are not sure if Netflix is also serving the 4K UHD streaming along with HDR on the Xperia XZ Premium like Amazon.
As the LG G6 only has a 1080p stream with Dolby Vision. We don’t have a device right now to confirm and Netflix hasn’t specified on its website.
